Vampire facelift is a procedure that combines plasma and platelets from your blood with other rejuvenation techniques to get rid of facial lines and wrinkles resulting from aging. 

The treatment triggers collagen production and stimulates natural wound healing responses. Therefore, the vampire facelift is a safe, convenient, and cost-effective treatment for immediate smoothing and glowing look in 2 to 3 weeks. 

This patient's guide explains who can get a vampire facelift and addresses what to expect before, during, and after the facial uplift.

Who Can Have Vampire Facelift? 

A vampire facelift is an excellent option for those who want to look youthful as possible but are not ready for invasive surgery. 

Ideal candidates for vampire facial are patients struggling with:

  • Acne scarring
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation / Darker patches on the skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin texture 
  • Blotchiness and age spots
  • Visible skin pores

Not attending to these and other aging signs can make you look older than you are. Vampire facelift is among the safest and most effective ways to fight aging skin. 

The procedure is not ideal for patients who experience blood-related disorders, blood and bone cancers, or anemia. Besides, those taking blood thinners or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory should stop the medications a month before the treatment. 

In your initial consultation with the medical practitioner, he will assess your concerns and determine if you are an ideal candidate for a vampire facelift. 

Vampire Facelift Treatment Duration

A vampire facelift will occur at a medical office or health facility and take between 30 minutes and one hour. However, it helps to know that the treatment duration differs according to treated areas.   

Therefore, the patient should prepare adequately to avoid any inconveniences. 

Vampire Facelift Side Effects

Vampire facial is a safe procedure, and side effects are minimal. Patients who undergo the process may experience:

  • Itchiness
  • Swollen face
  • redness
  • Minor bruising at the site
  • A slight tingling or burning sensation 

Besides, some patients could experience reactions to the rejuvenation products applied. However, reports of such reactions are minimal, and they fade after the procedure. The medical practitioner will advise you on the best approach for dealing with such side effects. 

Vampire Facial Recovery Time

After a vampire facelift procedure, most patients need two days of recovery. The side effects will resolve quickly without seeking any medical treatments. 

The recovery time differs based on the extent of treatment and the patient's ability to heal quickly. Some candidates will return to work immediately after the procedure, while others resume daily chores the following day. 

However, after the vampire facial, the average recovery time is between 24 to 48 hours after the procedure. 

Vampire Facelift Success Rate

Vampire facial delivers 99% effectiveness in dealing with facial issues. Candidates experience faster skin rejuvenation, improved skin texture, and youthful look days after the procedure. 

What makes vampire facial unique is that the procedure involves collecting platelet-rich plasma from your blood and applying it to your face. Ideally, plasma is protein-rich and carries nutrients, proteins, and hormones to the rest of your body. 

Besides, plasma contains growth factors that increase cell turnover, collagen production, and elastin, providing thinner younger-looking skin. 

Therefore, it is an effective treatment and provides faster healing with minimal to negligible downtime. 

Alternative Treatments

Other alternatives to vampire facial are: 

A chemical peel removes the damaged upper layer revealing new cells beneath. The procedure is fast but leaves the skin feeling tender, red, and sun-sensitive. 

Electro mesotherapy involves applying an electrical field that performs the function of microdermabrasion, affecting the cell-plasma membrane and making it more porous. Consequently, the serums penetrate deeper into the skin. 

Finally, laser treatments involve different wavelengths of light to bypass the epidermis and stimulate the tissue underneath. 

While the above procedures can be helpful to patients, vampire facial provides a more convenient experience. Vampire facial is fast and effective, while the patients experience minimal downtime. 

How Is the Procedure Performed? 

The primary ingredient to vampire facelift is the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) matrix derived from the patient's red blood cells. 

The medical practitioner will separate the PRP and other blood components in a centrifuge and combine it with a hyaluronic acid-based filler. The process creates a platelet-rich fibrin matrix,

Therefore, the PRP treatment and cell-therapy boost collagen production, improve blood flow and provide faster soft tissue healing. Besides, the procedure triggers skin growth and improves fat tissue regeneration. 

What Does Vampire Facelift Involve? 

We will plan and arrange the procedure to suit your personal preferences and match you with the best vampire facelift specialist available in Turkey. There are a few primary steps involved in this procedure:

  • Collection of Blood

The process begins with blood collection. Therefore, a medical assistant uses a needle to draw 5 to 15 ml of blood from a vein in the arm. The personnel will seal the vial ready for the next stage of the Vampire facelift. 

  • Centrifuge / PRP Concentration

The blood sample goes into the centrifuge to isolate platelets and form the platelet-rich plasma concentration. The process activates platelets to release growth factors and stimulate the standard function properties for tissue healing. 

  • Micro-needling

The practitioner prepares the patient's skin for the treatment application process. Therefore, the assistant will apply a light numbing agent to the face before the practitioner uses the micro-needling device to create tiny needle wounds in the skin. 

  • Coating Process

The practitioner coats treatment areas with the already developed PRP concentration. The procedure involves re-needling the concentration into the skin band. It's not painful. 

Upon re-needling, the growth factors work quickly and stimulate multipotent stem cells in the skin. 

What Should I Expect After Vampire Facelift? 

A vampire facelift does come with immediate discoloration and skin sensitivity. The pinkish discoloration typically resolves within 24 hours. 

Healing is faster, and the skin should normalize within 1 to 4 days. Some bruising could occur for candidates with sensitive skin but resolves within the first week after the procedure. 

The patient should report any unusual or unexpected side effects like deep burning sensations, bleeding, or even skin numbness to the doctor.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is Vampire Facial Better Than Micro-Needling? 

Vampire facial gives better results in terms of effectiveness and benefits because doctors draw the treatment concentration from the patient's body and inject it directly into the skin. However, it is more of a topical over the skin treatment in micro-needling. 

How Long Does Vampire Facelift Last? 

Vampire facelift will last for 6-18 months depending on the patient's age, lifestyle, and the number of fillers used during the treatment. 

Is PRP Better Than Botox?

PRP works more gradually and yields a more significant transformation than Botox when it comes to a facelift. On the other hand, Botox is a muscle-relaxing treatment that gets rid of the muscle pinching that causes wrinkles formation. 

Is Vampire Facelift Cost Abroad Affordable?

In general, yes the procedure will be more affordable abroad and cost less in popular medical tourism locations like Turkey. But there are some factors that affect the vampire facelift cost like the location of the clinics, the surgeon's experience, and the technique used.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
